Tulip 2

Posted by
Christine (Ellemford, United Kingdom) on 2 March 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Couldn't resist this when I saw the effect of the light from the window.

NIKON D60 1/1600 second F/5.6 ISO 800 135 mm (35mm equiv.)

I'm very much an amateur photographer. I live in the hills of the Scottish Borders which has fantastic flora and fauna, as well as wonderful light.

It is almost a watercolour, and with just a bit of processing and you would have a lovely 'original'. Nice backlight.
